    I have been restaining with Behr semitransparent water based stain every 1-2 years on pressure treated redwood and would like to switch to DEFY product.

    Is it necessary to strip, clean, brighten first? As both products are water based.

    Yes you would need to strip off the Behr and brighten. Behr is a very poor product that films on top of the wood. You cannot apply a high quality penetrating stain on top. The new stain will not penetrate or adhere properly.

    In other words you cannot “fix” Behr by adding something else over top of it.
